HELL NO!!!!!!! Ryan did nothing for Mother's day because the doesn't believe in these holidays. I didn't even get a card from the boys from him.

I will have the boys draw on a card for him but I think that is it.

For DH, I think I will take Aidan to a store like Home Depot and get to the gadgety section and let him pick something out himself. I'll also have him make a card.

For my own father, that's a different story. I have no clue! I guess I better get on that soon.

No clue for my father. My sister always shows me up by mailing a card even though she is 45 minutes away. I try to get by with Lily coloring a card.

I need to do better for DH this year. I did nothing for him last year. It was a rough summer. I am planning on getting him his favorite cologne since he just ran out. I need to stop procrastinating and find out who sells it because i haven't bought it in years.

Ummmm.... yeah. Probably not much happening here. We'll hopefully get some new gas for our grill and cookout. But that's about the plans here.

DH is going to a guys' fishing weekend that weekend, so that's sort of his Father's Day gift. The boys and I might paint him a tie shirt (it's in my blog). I'll have Liam paint the main section and put Emerson's hand print on it too.

For my dad, I think I'll get him a small photo frame with the boys' pictures. He just got a new job and will have a desk, so I figure a small picture of his grandsons will be nice.

We usually just do cards, we're not a big gift giving family. But, I think I'm going to steal this idea that I just saw in the Sept. '10 PR. http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f1...d-d-photo.html

Not sure. I was going to have Maddie paint a rock for him to keep on his desk at work. Don't know about what else.

DH doesn't really like these manufactured holidays but he did get me flowers last month so I figured I'd treat him to dinner and a movie since he's off on Saturday. We've been wanting to see The Hangover 2 since it came out.
The funny thing is, it'll really be him treating himself since I don't work and he gives me a weekly allowance.

As for my dad he gets a card "signed" by the boys and he'd better be happy with that.
